Pumpkin Cranberry Bars

October 13, 2008 – 5:10 pm

I got this recipe from Culinary Concoctions by Peabody, a wonderful sweet-focused blog by a fellow northwest dweller. I made a couple changes, some intentional and some inadvertent :-P The bars came out great, despite myself. Shaun thought they would be better chocolate chips, though. I’ll have to make some cookies with the leftover pumpkin, or experiment with a layered mini chocolate pumpkin pie, as we both thought that that sounded like a really tasty thing to try to make.

My changes:

  • I used and 8″x8″ pan instead of a 9″x9″ – so mine are thicker and should have been baked a bit longer. The center was a bit underdone, but still entirely cuttable and tasty :)
  • I (unintentionally) halved the butter, only using ½ cup instead of 1 cup
  • I added about ¼ tsp of freshly grated nutmeg
  • I probably put in closer to 2 tsp of vanilla
  • I omitted the pecans as I didn’t have any in the house at the time

Head over to Peabody’s for the recipe!
